In this article we will take a look at the 10 best undervalued stocks to buy now according to Reddit. You can skip our detailed analysis of these companies and go directly to 5 Best Undervalued Stocks to Buy Now According to Reddit.

The stock market has been on a wild ride since the start of the year with stock volatility, influx of retail investors that strategize on social media, and stimulus packages designed to jumpstart the economy all factoring into major market highs and lows so far. Investors on internet platform Reddit have been by far the most influential in shaping market dynamics through this uncertain period. At the turn of the year, these young investors drove a record 140% rally in the stock of video game retailer GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME).

The GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME) saga led to a regulatory probe in the United States and caught several well established financial institutions off-guard. Months after the historic rally, it would be fair to say that this new dynamic in global market trading has proved more resilient than initially thought. Young investors now routinely spoil hedge fund bets by banding together through Reddit groups and use collective action to spur stock rallies and crashes. These groups are public and the conversations on them make for interesting reading.

For example, Reddit users have been sharing their thoughts on undervalued stocks in recent days. One of the top picks in this category seems to be Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE: BABA), the Chinese technology firm. Despite being the largest online retailer in China, perhaps the biggest internet market in the world, Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE: BABA) shares are moderately priced compared to international competitors and have been hit recently by rumors of Chinese government restrictions on the founder of the firm.

Another interesting pick on Reddit forums in the undervalued list is steelmaker Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. (NYSE: CLF), one of the largest steel manufacturers in the United States that has a lot to gain from recent government plans to pour hundreds of billions into American infrastructure. Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. (NYSE: CLF) has also seen share price climb in recent weeks on the back of increasing prices because of a Chinese government crackdown on steel producers. There has also been speculation on the removal of favorable tariffs imposed on the industry in 2017.

With the vaccine rollout slowly allowing for the reopening of bars and restaurants, it is perhaps no surprise that Molson Coors Beverage Company (NYSE: TAP) is also being touted as an undervalued stock for the post-pandemic economy. Molson Coors Beverage Company (NYSE: TAP) sells beer and other alcoholic drinks and recently beat market estimates on revenue and earnings per share for the first quarter of 2021, detailing that it also expected to reinstate dividend payments in the second half of 2021 on the back of improved sales numbers.

There is no doubt that the finance world will have to contend with the new economic force that is retail investors who are rewriting the rules of trade through social media activism. Their battle with hedge funds in the next few years will probably have far-reaching consequences. The entire hedge fund industry is feeling the reverberations of the changing financial landscape. Its reputation has been tarnished in the last decade, during which its hedged returns couldn’t keep up with the unhedged returns of the market indices. On the other hand, Insider Monkey’s research was able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that outperformed the S&P 500 ETFs by more than 124 percentage points since March 2017. Between March 2017 and February 26th 2021 our monthly newsletter’s stock picks returned 197.2%, vs. 72.4% for the SPY. Our stock picks outperformed the market by more than 124 percentage points (see the details here). We were also able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that significantly underperformed the market. We have been tracking and sharing the list of these stocks since February 2017 and they lost 13% through November 16th. That’s why we believe hedge fund sentiment is an extremely useful indicator that investors should pay attention to.
